Fan Made Video - “The East” - ‘Breath Of Life’
Footage from the film “The East” (Zal Batmanglij, Brit Marling) and additional scenes from the WSJ channel.
Song: “Breath Of Life” by Florence + The Machine
None of these are my properties, I’m just playing with them, trying to express all the love I do have for this movie, its characters (here, it’s more centered on Sarah Moss, played by Brit Marling).
"Breath Of Life" is a song that means a lot to me on a personal level.
Not so long ago, I also felt stifled and ready to give up, but then a man from Stockholm came into my life, and it felt like a breath of fresh air. It was literally a breath of life.
Hope you’ll enjoy my little work.
This is my 2nd fan video, I feel like I could have maybe done better, but I’m a damn perfectionist !
Dedicated with all my passion to Sikanapanele, izzycannon, characteristicallyexuberant and skarsjoy (oh and robbstarksy !!!)
Today I turn twenty, but I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished enough this year to deserve presents. So instead of receiving gifts, I figure it’d make more sense to make gifts for people.
Under the cut you’ll find several Christmas icons featuring the lovely Ellen, including two with Brit. Do give this post a like if you snagged one - it’d mean a lot to me. Credit is wonderful, but not necessary.
Enjoy, and I hope they aren’t as shitty as I think they are. ♡
Zal Batmanglij’s 35mm thesis film from the American Film Institute has eluded the Internet for six years. And here it is on iTunes.
Film Parallels: Sound of My Voice
In Sound of My Voice (2011), Peter swallows the transmitter. In The East (2013), Sarah swallows the memory card.
Director Zal Batmanglij revealed that they did not realize the parallel until they were in the editing room for The East.
